For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.
(2 Corinthians 11:4, NASB)

Apparently Any Christ Will Do Beautifully For Joel Osteen

Below you will see Word Faith preacher Joel Osteen say that he believes Mormons are “true Christians.” This incredible statement from an alleged evangelical pastor came during Osteen’s December 23rd appearance on FOX News Sunday With Chris Wallace.

Wallace asks Joel Osteen:

WALLACE: And what about Mitt Romney? And I’ve got to ask you the question, because it is a question whether it should be or not in this campaign, is a Mormon a true Christian?

OSTEEN: Well, in my mind they are. Mitt Romney has said that he believes in Christ as his savior, and that's what I believe, so, you know, I'm not the one to judge the little details of it. So I believe they are.

And so, you know, Mitt Romney seems like a man of character and integrity to me, and I don't think he would — anything would stop me from voting for him if that's what I felt like.

WALLACE: So, for instance, when people start talking about Joseph Smith, the founder of the church, and the golden tablets in upstate New York, and God assumes the shape of a man, do you not get hung up in those theological issues?

OSTEEN: I probably don’t get hung up in them because I haven’t really studied them or thought about them. And you know, I just try to let God be the judge of that. I mean, I don’t know.

I certainly can’t say that I agree with everything that I’ve heard about it, but from what I’ve heard from Mitt, when he says that Christ is his savior, to me that’s a common bond. (Online source)

For more on the Mormon view of Jesus we refer you to Mormon Church: Deity of Christ. But as you can clearly see above, Joel Osteen has said, Mitt Romney as well as other Mormons are “true Christians.”

So since the Jehovah’s Witnesses also say “Christ” is their “Savior,” Apprising Ministries now asks: Will Joel Osteen next embrace them as true Christians as well?   What are your thoughts on this article?
